Hors d'Oeuvres

Since the last two polishes that I've worn were both from Essie's Encrusted Treasures collection, I thought why not finish it off with another one, "Hors d'Oeuvres."  This is the last of the polishes that I have from that collection (although the collection has 6 in total).  I thought it was going to be a texture polish, but it's not.  I wasn't disappointed however.  I love the super shiny foil look that it has.

In a previous post I used a polish from the Encrusted Treasures collection by Essie, Peak of Chic.  When choosing what polish to wear next, I figured that I might as well stay with the same theme and wear another color from that collection.  So, here it is... Belugaria.

This one was extremely hard to photograph.  I must have taken a hundred or more pictures trying to capture all of the holographic sparkle from the hex glitter.  It really is quite sparkly in person and flashes with awesome color changes on the nail.  This is one of those polishes that you have to see in real life to truly admire... and I do.

Snowbird - Peak Of Chic by Essie

While most of you are enjoying a beautiful spring, it's still snowing up here.  Yes, it's literally snowing as I type this post.  <sigh>  I've had the old song, "Snowbird" by Anne Murray stuck in my head: "Spread your tiny wings and fly away and take the snow back with you where it came from on that day."  It inspired me to pull this polish out of my untried stash, Peak Of Chic by Essie.  It reminds me of a feathery white snowbird.

It also reminds me of these two, Hawk and Koori from Buck Rogers.
